but that's a personal bias since it's our lab's name. I'll be looking for the Hello: post tomorrow.

I took my 6 & 5 year old dtrs to the OSU game this year and made it from the band entrance through the last blissful snap and watched the field get stormed. We did it 2 ways - first we went to a baseball game that summer & made it through 8 innings (got the kids used to the length & flow of a sporting event). Second, I borrowed my Father-in-law's advice - "keep feeding them until they stop eating, then it's time to go.". Not that we were mainlining nachos all game, but I did not turn down the extra cracker jack request - and I got to sit through an amazing football game, with my daughters there too.

about 15%, but that is a random guess admittedly.

I feel kind of dirty for watching but have no plans to stop
|2 years 27 weeks ago||This game is an acid flashback||
to last year except if we never really had to punt & our defense was worse. What a game! Far better than 9-6 IMHO...

& diet tonic water - a concession the waist & clock have mandated. Still recovering from the "blue flu" I picked up back in A2 last weekend, but wouldn't trade in the memories of that game for anything, including better health right now.

Knew the tune as soon as I saw the words. Great anthem and better playground; the education was 1st rate too - though all I remember was recess. Thanks for rekindling my memories.

In the last 40 years, the best UM football coaches have either been an unheralded MAC coach or little-known (nationally) coordinator. But, both took UM either almost to, or to, the top of the mountain nationally. In short, neither Bo nor Lloyd had national "buzz" prior to taking the UM job, and in each case, their coaching stint had less to do with them personally than with coaching at block M Michigan.
For better or worse, Michigan remains a brand, and a powerful one at that. Look at the last 3 years, specifically the number of nationally (ABC/ESPN) televised games we have appeared on regardless of our record or the quality of the team we have put on the field. Coaches in the past who have recognized and embraced this, and "meshed" their egos within the brand - Bo's most famous quotes, put on T-shirts by Beilein, are of "The Team, the Team, the Team" - have been very successful here.
I believe Hoke is from this same vintage. He has a similar pedigree to both Bo and Lloyd. Moreover, he hired a DC with far more pedigree, and perhaps more UM roots, than himself. He does appear to be more of a delegator than inventor, and that is quite fine with me now. I will miss the dynamic offense of the last 1 1/2 years. I will miss MGoBoard discussions of Florida High School electrons potentially darting across Michigan Stadium for future years. But, I will not miss the 3-3-5; I will not miss special teams ineptitude; and I will not miss a 7-6 record as the zenith. I am excited for the coming year and years to come. I think Hoke will turn out to be a far better recruiter than initially presumed, and under Mattison I see our defense becoming frankly nasty within 2 years, if not less. Further, our enemy in Columbus has been up to a great deal of malfeasance, a recruiting and competitive bonanza in the right hands (and I believe Hoke/Mattison fit that bill).
I am glad that I had the opportunity to see UM become a spread offense at some point in my life. It didn't work, unfortunately, and now it is time to go back to the "old days' when we will (hopefully) bemoan the aesthetics of 31-14 victories vs MSU (ytMSU). I look forward to the road ahead.

In Vegas, beer:30, and we just ran Tennessee off the court. Very good day..
|3 years 17 weeks ago||Hail!!||
I love this friggin' team! Coach B's best coaching job yet. Let's beat tOSU tomorrow!

Because Danny Hope is an always be a mustachioed douche. Welcome

Back to the future!!

with the buzz of Tanqueray and tonic

but we need his scholarship for a QB this fall. Preferably pro-style, but anyone not named after someone inaugurated as leader of the free world 50 years ago today would be appreciated as QB3.

but nothing will ever top chipati sauce to accompany pizza.
How I miss Pizza House. Haven't been able to find anything anywhere close to that divine sauce since left A2...
|3 years 25 weeks ago||I call BS on that story||
Maybe I'm either drinking delicious blue kool-aid or am an early and previousky unbeknownst Hoke-maniac, but I see us winning 2/3 of ND, ytMSU, and OSU games for 9-3 final.
|3 years 26 weeks ago||these aren't tears of sadness||
i was just cutting an onion
|3 years 26 weeks ago||Agree||
He's the best remaining candidate given all the names thrown out there thus far. I have but three questions for my esteemed MGobloggers:
1) Can he recruit "high-end" (4-5*) talent consistently? I profess no knowledge of TCU's recruiting classes, but our best defenses have historically had at least 1-2 undisputed studs; we need such ability given OSU and ytMSU's recent success against us, risk of ceding future such recruits to those nefarious institutions, and the black hole that will likely be this recruiting class barring last minute miracles.
2) What's the nearest airport to TCU?
3) Did GERG take the stuffed beaver with him or leave it behind for the next DC?
|3 years 26 weeks ago||The one constant between 2008 & now||
isn't the AD or anyone in his office. Not that DB looks like he wields a pimp hand at this moment at all; quite the contrary, he (& unfortunately UM) come across as bumbling & behind in a coaching search late in the recruiting calendar.
|3 years 27 weeks ago||Thanks Brian||
for the excellent work on the Gator Bowl and all previews this season. Hard to believe that in 24 hours we won't be able to discuss actual football games (excluding the spring game) for 9 months. My heart says UM, but not with much confidence. I will enjoy the ride regardless and root like hell for the team, the team, the team.
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Excellent choices||
Might I add a couple other gins that I favor:
|3 years 31 weeks ago||Tanqueray||
& tonic. The drink which IMO is always in season. T minus 2 hours...
